Great classic heavy metal album; it starts of brilliantly with the title track and it doesn't stop till the end.

Classic album..."The Ace Of Spades" is simply one of the best heavy metal songs ever recorded(and it lasts only 2:49!!!) plus add to that "Love Me Like A Reptile","Shoot You In The Back","Fire,Fire","Dance" & "The Hammer"...as Lemmy says:"We Are Motorhead And We Play Rock & Roll"...'nuff said...90/100

Let's stop all the revisionist history already: I know Lemmy was (I started to type "is"--sniff!) sick of "Ace Of Spades" the song, and doesn't get why it, among all the others, should be the one Motorhead song that fans have chosen to elevate above all others. And yes, the band would grow more technically proficient and go on to release some absolute corkers, especially post-Bastards. But let's all agree that Ace Of Spades is the best album from the early, classic period. There's just something so reckless about the speed and volume and attitude that doesn't come across on later albums. Songs like the title track, "Fire Fire" and "The Hammer" just roar like a runaway truck. What passes for slow ("The Chase Is Better Than The Catch") is what most bands of the time would call normal. And the songs themselves are perfectly imperfect, not a bad one in the bunch. The production might lack the steamrolling power of future albums, but is about as heavy and loud as you could expect in 1980. O

My special favorites are the title track, "Love Me Like A Reptile," "Live To Win," "Fire Fire," "Dance," "The Chase ..." and "The Hammer." On the whole, Ace Of Spades is entirely deserving of its legendary status and its perch atop the Motorhead catalog.
